The standard application route is for applicants who have met all of the required formal education, training, work experience and on-the-job supervision requirements established for a credential at the time of application.


Certification Steps

Most FCB credentials follow the standard application route, which includes these steps:

  1. If you don’t already have one, create an online account. Watch the “How To” for assistance creating your account.
  2. Create an electronic application for certification (from your online account).
    • Complete all required fields of information.
    • Upload required documents.
    • Pay the certification fee.
  3. Provide mandatory forms to eligible people to complete and submit to FCB on your behalf.
  4. Register for the exam and pay the associated fees.
  5. Pass the exam.

Key Information

  1. When the application fee is paid, the FCB assigns the record to a dedicated Certification Specialist, who will serve as the single point of contact for applicants throughout the certification process.
  2. Applicants will not be approved to test until all components of the certification application have been approved.
  3. The credential is awarded after a passing score is earned on the exam.
